Have A Heart

I just wanted to post something before my next roast, Life With Kaishon, to let my blogging buddies know Eddie is alive and feeling much better. My legs and feet continue to improve, although my feet are still swollen, particularly the right one. I am still busy and I have not been able to venture into Blogland very often.
So I wanted to show my mug and say a simple, "I love you" to all my blogging buddies.

You've heard of reading tea leaves, but how about this?

Even the coffee stains show I have a big heart!
Whilst writing I am listing some previews of coming attractions which I will address as soon as I am free and able:
The continuing saga of Eddie's legs, as told by his complaining feet. For those who missed the first part press HERE
In part two Eddie's feet continue to complain and they bring in other body parts to really lay it on the line to Eddie that he MUST put his feet up (and of course Mrs Bluelights won't let him LOL). An unwelcome and threatening stranger appears! Watch this space!!

Marguerite kindly passed two awards to me a while ago and I intend to have an award ceremony on a BOGOFF basis. If you buy one - you get one free!!
Once again thank you, cher

I do intend to revive The Wizard Of Oz at some point but at the moment that is a big ask.
* * * * * * * * *
And of course Freddie Bluelights has some important lessons as to why ladies speak 21,000 words a day to our 7,000. And the answer is not just because us men can't get a word in edgeways, either.

I have listed all the Stanley Holloway Monologues in the form of a Contents Page on my third blog, used for ridiculous things - becoming of an increasing necessity these days LOL. It takes a special mind like Socrates to handle such matters which are well outside the capability of both Eddie and Plato, so a while ago I launched my blog Socrates' Soliloquies. The monologues themselves appear on my second blog, Plato's Procrastinations. But here is the great news - I have found a lot of monologues not recorded by Stanley and I shall be posting these on Plato when people return from their summer vacation.

The Sunday RoastI am pleased to report that I have started receiving some new roasts, after recently getting perilously close to running out. Please keep them coming and . . . . there are some great ones in progress. Please support the column as best you can. Thank you.


  1. oo...great selection for the next roast...continuing to pray for you eddie...and i will get around to that roast one day....going on 9 months at this point...just securing my place as biggest procrastinator...smiles.

  2. That inside heart is amazing!
    Looking forward to the roasts and things.
    Luv Maggie X

    Nuts in May

  3. Okey Dokey Eddie, I am all ears for this weekend's roast. I'll be here for sure.

  4. I've been having internet connection problems off and on all week, so I hope it stays up long enough for my comment.

    First, I am pleased that your feet will be doing another report soon. My own two have been complaining LOUDLY and often, so I have finally made an appointment to see a podiatrist on Monday. That should pacify them at least for a bit. If not, well, they did enjoy commiserating with your feet.

    Next...I have a bone to pick with you - "...ladies speak 21,000 words a day to our 7,000"? Huh? Evidently you have never witnessed life in the Potter household, where Fred reigns supreme and poor Ethel has to wait for him to come up for air before getting in a word or two. I'd say in our house, it's HIS 50,000 words to my 2,000.

    (Of course, I have long ago mastered the art of selective conversation, and so I just filter out all but about 200 or so of his 50,000.)

    And lastly, is this a Rorschach test in the cup? Because it COULD be a heart, but I also see a butterfly, and if I cock my head slighly to the right, I see a simple sketch of a woman from the back, in a strapless summer dress, her left shoulder in the foreground, scarf on her head to hold her hair, which is peaking out underneath and blowing in the wind.

    I do not EVEN want to know what that says about me.

  5. I always look forward to the roasts, so I'll be here. SO very glad to hear you are alive and well!

  6. Ethel Mae
    I am sorry your computer has been down but glad you are up and running now. Gosh! what have I said, with the feet and all?

    Seriously, I hope your consultation with the podiatrist provides an effective and lasting solution for you. Apart from our feet we obviously have a great deal in common for I have been refered to The Podioatry Department of a local hospital to see what might be the problem. I have yet to make an appointment. Secondly, I find it difficult to utilise my 7000 words a day amidst a torrent of orders, commands, instructions, wishes, do-lists etc I receive from my darling little Piranha Fish on a daily basis LOL. I think you should put your foot down with Fred for him not allowing you your 21,000 word quota.

    Finally, my feet wish to pass on their love and best regards to your feet.

    Oh and they say Eddie is most excited about your explanation about what you think the coffee stains might be in his mug. Although he realises that it could be butterflies your other hypothesis is already causing him to have palputations and butterflies in his stomach.

  7. I'm so glad to hear that you are feeling much better and also that the roast responses are getting much better. I very much enjoy your blog so this is excellent news!

  8. We heart you too!
    I'm glad you posted something on here other than roasts. Don't get me wrong. I love the roasts but I miss your stories, too!

  9. Hi Eddie, how did you do that heart...come on, do tell?

    Gosh, you are one busy guy! glad that you're recovering, even if the feet are still swollen- you really should put them up sometimes.

    Looking forward to lots of fun and roasts in the coming weeks!

  10. You are a Renaissance Man with all you do Eddie.

  11. Don't know how I missed this post! Think it may have been that night that you had those two senior moments! lol My dear Eddie, you are such a sweetheart!!! You have the biggest heart in Blogland and I love the way you share it with us.

    As for my roast, I'm right up there with Brian, competing for the Biggest Procrastinator! lol Someday, cher, someday!

    And don't forget to put your feet up, a lot, and make that appointment, soon!

  12. So glad this is behind you.


Thank you for your comment. You are most welcome to my humble abode.
